Style Notes

Rustic luxury. Chic stone exteriors and a reliance on natural woods, stone and local materials have created an elegant modern villa nestled in the heart of the Alpilles national park. The residence draws on the traditional rustic with terracotta roofing and exposed stone walls both inside and out, with a touch of glamour added by the sleek outdoor pool and statement designer lighting inside. Stone floors, wooden beamed ceilings and a largely neutral palette are uplifted by pops of bright color via bold feature walls and contemporary furnishings and artworks. Surrounded by the beautiful Alpilles Mountains, interiors draw in nature via large windows and doors that soak in the views. We love the gorgeous pool, perfectly positioned for basking in the sun and enjoying nature, while the exotic pool house with its fun lounge and bar area helps complete the perfect holiday hangout.

Eygalières, Provence

Medieval ruins and market stalls

This pretty village in the heart of Provence is perched in the northern Alpilles mountains and has medieval ruins along with shops, restaurants and bakeries. On a Friday, market stalls selling local produce line the stone streets and draw in plenty of local visitors. It’s a charming little village and is in a great location for exploring the area, with Avignon, Arles, Aix, Saint Remy and Les Baux de Provence all under hour’s drive away.
